i Google for images/videos i need in my hubs. Is it a violation of terms to use Google images/videos? If its a violation what to do? Where i get legal photo? Or how do i understand which Google photo or video is legal? Sorry for the stupid question but I am still learning.
Take a look at this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/42205?page=2#post983740
I take my videos from YouTube - as far as I know, if they're embedable, then it's okay to use them.

I'm a relative newbie around here, so don't shoot me down if I'm asking something that's pretty obvious, but one big question I have is why HubPages doesn't allow you to add a link to a photo?! On so many websites, it's almost always assumed that clicking on a photo will direct you to the...

This morning I stumbled over more than a couple of "Editor's Choice" Hubs which are blatantly using images they do not appear to have the rights to use. Since HP is pushing Editor's Choice as the very best of this site, so much so that they are giving people who opt into the program some...

I've seen this question floating around. I use both adsense and the hubpage ad program. Am I in violation of the adsense TOS by embedding youtube videos in my hubs as they are already monetized by adsense?
